View Full Version : [all variants] Subversion server commits mess up permissions - umask needed?

April 17th, 2009, 11:21 PM
I've set-up a subversion server following these instructions:


Everyone works nicely, except for one rather big problem. As soon as I make a commit via svn+ssh it changes the permissions on $repository/db/current to be the user and group that I used to make the commit. So then websvn suddenly complains. I have to go back in as root and chown/chmod so it's back to being owned by www-data:subversion.

I've read in this documentation (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.serverconfig.multimethod.html) that I could create a wrapper script for svn and svnserve. I've also read elsewhere that I could do this in .bashrc, but I'm not sure how!

Can anyone help? It seems strange that the default configuration would fail like this... have I just done something daft?
